A man more often associated with auto racing than pawn broking now finds himself in trouble with the law.

VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Roanoke;


When Tim McGuire opened a pawn shop a couple of years ago, he wanted to avoid stockpiling jewelry, T-V sets and other merchandise.
He figured he'd just lend money on vehicle TITLES, rather than take cars themselves.
Last Fall, a judge in Richmond ruled that pawn shops can only accept physical items... not vehicle titles.
The ruling could cost McGuire thousands of dollars, but he settled the case without a fight.
